** Elric was parodied in the infamous comic book ''ComicBook/CerebusTheAardvark'' via the character Elrod of Melvinbone: Elrod ''looked'' like Elric (and at least claimed to have a similar back-story), but had the personality and mannerisms of [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Foghorn Leghorn]].

* NemesisWeapon: Elric's signature weapon is the magical sword Stormbringer. One of his opponents is his EvilCounterpart cousin Yyrkoon, who wields Stormbringer's "brother" sword Mournblade. Later, in ''The Revenge of the Rose'', Gaynor the Damned (a Chaotic EvilCounterpart not just to Elric, but to all versions of the Eternal Champion) wields a "leach blade" which drains the power from magical weapons, including Stormbringer.

Originally a six book series by Creator/MichaelMoorcock, the story follows its title character, Elric of Melnibone, in his journey from a sickly sorceror-king to a top class warrior involved with the affairs of the gods. His weapon is Stormbringer, one of two evil demonic runeblades that feast upon the souls of those their wielders slay with them, have wills of their own, and tend to take over their wielders on occasion.
